Hi - I am a newbe to Linux and Suse Enterprise Server. I am working on a project and need to upgrade / update Rsyslog to version 8.19 from the currently installed version, 8.4. Here is what I have done so far:

I have downloaded the 8.19 tar.gz and extracted the rsyslog-8.19.0 folder.
From within the rsyslog-8.19.0 folder I have opened a terminal.
I raised it to a root terminal with the sudo su command
I then ran the following command: sudo zypper install rsyslog and here is the output I got:

linux-kr6t:/home/admin/Downloads/rsyslog-8.19.0 # sudo zypper install rsyslog
Refreshing service 'Advanced_Systems_Management_Module_12_x86_64'.
Refreshing service 'Certifications_Module_12_x86_64'.
Refreshing service 'Containers_Module_12_x86_64'.
Refreshing service 'SUSE_Linux_Enterprise_Server_12_SP1_x86_64'.
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'rsyslog' is already installed.
No update candidate for 'rsyslog-8.4.0-11.1.x86_64'. The highest available version is already installed.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.

What do I need to do to get this upgraded?
